    Default New Radar Mount

    Thought I would share a couple of photos of my new Radar Tower/mount for my new Garmin 18" HD. Looked for months in catalogs, online stores, and any other place I could think of for a radar tower that would accent the lines of my boat. Just couldn't come up with anything, so I built my own.

    Thanks, yes it does. It is removable, welded 304 stainless steel and with the dome attached, falls under the 15' maximum height for travel permits. Actually DOT will give special permits up to 16' height. 29" from roof to the crossbars allows for empty fuel drums or other storage capacity.

    Spent two weeks out in PWS around the 4th of July weekend. Used the radar for the first time and was very happy with the overlay of the chart plotter with the radar screen. Could identify a 18" buoy ball at almost a 1/4 mile. It was nice to know that if necessary the equipment would perform more than adequately. The radar mount did well by allowing room for a sit on top kayak and two 15 gallon empty fuel drums and my rope bags of shrimp pot rope.uploadfromtaptalk1406525852195.jpg
